day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: secretary of state hillary clinton vowed today that u.s. diplomats will not retreat from dangerous parts of the world. she spoke amid the ongoing questions about the attack in libya that killed four americans. after meeting with the italian foreign minister, clinton defended the administration's changing statements about the attack. >> to this day, to this day we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. every one of us has made clear that we are providing the best information we have at that time. >> sreenivasan: clinton also defended u.n. ambassador susan rice, who initially said the attack started with a protest against an anti-islamic video. u.s. authorities now believe computer hackers based in iran carried out cyber-attacks on persian gulf oil and gas companies over the summer. the attacks crippled 30,000 computers at major companies in saudi arabia and qatar. and defense secretary leon panetta warned thursday of a possible "cyber pearl harbor". he pr

the horrible things republicans are going to do. >> rose: clinton says if you have your fist in the other person's mouth they can't be talking. >> that is something the ryan people negots.ted and wanted explicitly because they thought it is harder to to be a jerk when you are sitting next to someone but biden falsified that entire theory and you could tell where the debate was going right at the beginning when he said that is malarkey which told you how aggress stiff he was going to be and told you a little bit about the intellectual tone and when he brought up the 47 percent i remember listening to the answer and there were about 15 different things packed in there that ryan, you know, would take half an hour to explain and defend them all so that's the way he was a the aggressive but this kind of performance, charlie is not available to the president. he cannot be like this. >> rose: in twitter because of the style -- >> someone said on twitter of biden's performance this is not a presidential performance, it might be a vice presidential performance and i think it reflects the fal

. but mike mccurry, a veteran democratic strategist and former press secretary to president bill clinton, said that does not mean the party should present itself as secular. >> the report makes clear that most of the nones say they believe in god, they describe themselves as religious or spiritual. so they are not open politically, if you are thinking of this in political terms, to overt appeals to secularism or denial of belief in god. >> meanwhile, vice president of the ethics and public policy center michael cromartie, a conservative, highlighted another finding of the survey -- that a large percentage of the unaffiliated say churches are too involved in politics. >> you have a strong message for people on the right and on the left, and that is please stop politicizing the pulpit every sunday. and i say that to both. i think the reason for decline in some of these places is again because they politicize the pulpit so much, and people don't go to church to get politics. they go for other more important questions. >> next week, kim lawton will have more on what the rise of the nones cou

were the choom gang. >> bill clinton, you know, famously said he didn't inhale. obama, on the other hand, not only inhaled but was sort of the ringleader of the idea of total absorption, what they call ta, where you had to make sure that everything got inhaled. take roof hits while you're in the car. >> i think it was important to barry because perhaps it did fill a void that wasn't apparent at the time. i don't think any of us thought of it that way, but now in retrospect, we look back and went, hey, we really were a family. this was really, really cool. >> narrator: obama's senior yearbook tells the story. >> in his yearbook he thanks "gramps and toot," who are stan and madeline, his grandparents, and the choom gang, and ray for the good times. who was their drug dealer. who was kind of a hippie who could get them the good stuff. and he doesn't thank his mother. >> narrator: by the time he graduated from punahou, obama had decided to leave hawaii. >> one of the central themes that i find from his life is his intense desire to avoid being trapped. his mother had that. she didn't wa

of this campaign-- bill clinton's and mitt romney's in that debate-- were the two wonkiests. somehow i think in a moment of great cynicism people like to be talked to in a serious powerpoint sort of way in which a lot of us in the media think oh, it's over their heads, they'll be bored. >> pelley: but don't be folksy? >> i wouldn't go too far away from the statistics and data which is ryan's home turf. >> the difference is bill clinton used the word arithmetic i've never heard paul ryan use the word arithmetic. arithmetic is a word understood by people who only went to the sixth grade or people with ph.d.s. it's one thing to be wonky and not to do it in obscure language that's off putting. i do think as well that the question of the vice president is always, judy, he's mr. august when he's chosen. joe lieberman was a popular choice in 2000 but the real test is mr. october, what he does in this debate. paul ryan was a popular choice t ong manybuesti th es t this is his moment of truth. and there's going to be a lot of nervousness. >> i think you would agree it's never about them. they

clinton budget director. >> who disavows it. >> this idea came from the clinton commission to save medicare chaired by senator john broek, here's the point. >> which was rejected. >> if we don't fix this problem pretty soon, then current seniors get cut. here's the problem. 10,000 people are retiring every single day in america today and they will for 20 years. that is not a political statement. >> if we just did one thing, if we just, if they just allow medicare to bargain for the cost of drugs like medicaid can, that would save $156 billion right off the bat. >> and it would deny senior choices. >> all-- it would deny, they are not denied, look, folks, on all you seniors out there, have you been denied choices, have you lost medicare advantage. >> because it working right now. >> because you changed the law. >> let me ask you, if it could help solve the problem, why not very slowly raise the medicare eligibility age by two years as congressman ryan suggests. >> look, i was there when we did that with social security. in 1983. i was one of eight people sitting in the room that inc

noorty policy. so kissinger had to deliver three people. flash forward, you're hillary clinton now. you have to negotiate with a muslim brotherhood president of egypt who is in a -- just new to the job in a very frail and weak situation. you've got a revolution in syria, there's basically no one to deal with. you could deal with haefz but he can't deliver six blocks beyond his palace and in israel you have a minority government led baby by netanyahu that is an extreme government. it's michele bachmann 20 times over. so it's not exactly an environment conducive for great heroic foreign policy. mama, tell your daughters not to grow up to secretaries of state, not now. you want to be secretary of education, not secretary of state. >> rose: (laughs) so what ought to be the foreign policy debate in this campaign? >> well, i tell you what i've been focused on and i think it's about making our own country strong, charlie. making our own country an object of emulation. because that's the greatest thing about america. we have the power of emulation, people will follow and copy us in a way t

some level don't you think -- i know if you're hillary clinton had been elected president i know that no where would anybody feel it was necessary to give women -- to make women part of affirmative action any more. don't you think if the country has elected an african american president that you can say on some level that, yeah, still exists but certainly not at the level wilt was when affirmative action was started. >> you know a way that you can argue just because -- i celebrate president barack obama's election to president but that doesn't mean we fought all the problems, that inclusion and diversity we have lot of work to do. i think that we have to set about doing that work, we need to improve k-12 education and close those education gaps that we see, absolutely we do. but you don't do that with policies that strip away pell grants, that defund public education. you don't do that with policies that make it really difficult for students to get student loan or to close down opportunities for very qualified african american students to get in to college and universities and to
